Cardiothoracic & Vascular Surgery

The human body is a wonder when it comes to understanding its functioning. What stimulates the heart to pump in blood, how do lungs separately absorb oxygen, and how the blood reaches each and every organ in the body, is exactly what the cardiothoracic and vascular system deals with. If you have a disturbed respiratory cycle, you feel it when you can’t breathe. You don’t get enough oxygen and end up having lowered levels of oxygen in your blood, resulting in poor circulation. So, when there’s a disturbance in the blood circulation, it affects the heart’s functioning, by not allowing it to pump enough blood to the rest of the body. This is when cardiothoracic and vascular surgeons are consulted.

Cardiovascular Thoracic Surgery

Understanding cardiothoracic and Vascular Surgery

Cardiothoracic surgery is a field of medicine that deals with the surgical treatments of the organs located in the thorax (the chest). This includes treating the heart. These surgeries are complex in nature due to the involvement of the vascular or circulatory system, which is responsible for the blood flow in the entire body. The vascular system in connected to the heart as it receives blood from the lungs and sends it to the other organs in the body, for them to carry out their respective functions well.

Cardiothoracic and Vascular Surgeons

A Cardiothoracic and Vascular Surgeon is a highly skilled doctor who specialises in surgical procedures to treat diseases of the heart and circulatory system. A cardiothoracic and vascular surgeon diagnoses and treats any blockage in the vascular system that needs to be cleared in order to help the blood flow normally.
